Use the Print Screen key. The screenshots will be called grab0000.tga, grab0001.tga, etc. They will be in the root directory of the game (Ubi Soft/IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles or the equivalent for Pacific Fighters stand alone). The game will write over these files each time you start it up, so save the ones you want by renaming them to something else.

squares and symbols? yikes that sound nuckin' futs. are u sure you're in the root directory?

Welcome to the forums!

They are a special format: 'targa' (tga) files. They don't show up in Windows without downloading a free program -Irfan View:

If you have any of the photoshop versions you'll be able to view them there aswell. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Or get IL2 Manager and it will locate any tga files in the dir and convert them to jpgs for you when you close PF.
